Waiting

Still pregnant! I thought Amy would like to know! I realize at this point my body is ready, but the baby is not. Kind of like waiting for something you know is coming like Christmas. You have the tree up, all the presents purchased and the Christmas cards out, but you are waiting on Christmas. At least Christmas you know what date it will be! Looking back over my temperature charts I realize the actual due date is closer to July 4th, so I am not actually late, but I am impatient! Knowing that the little one just needs a little more time, doesn't settle me. I remember when Eric and I were trying to get pregnant. He just couldn't understand why I wanted to know IMMEDIATELY if I was pregnant, why I just couldn't wait until the missed period. This is totally the same thing. Does it mean anything to wait another couple days for my little one, no...but I want to be done with this now. In Church this morning, I was thinking I should start looking into exorcism, but isn't that really the same thing as an induction? Yesterday we walked 1.5 miles in the morning. We then walked for another 2 hours that evening and still nothing. Even though everyone suggests that, I don't think that is going to work for me. We walk all the time. I just have to figure out what thing I should plan for...like non-refundable that would cause me loose money or miss something cool. Maybe Eric and I should plan to go to DC for the 4th. I have always wanted to do that. It would be a mad house, but wouldn't that be a great story if I did happen to go into labor.

Mel...You know me well! I did think it would be the 3rd....but we'll see... :o) Uhh....Yeah.....that would be an experience...To go into labor in the middle of DC on the 4th....The fireworks may do it!!! Keep us up to date! Hopefully you won't have to do too much more waiting!

Just one observation - do you really want to go into labor in DC with thousands of people crammed there? Yikes, I don't know. Then again, we almost took a chance with a Jimmy Buffett show when I was pregnant with Drew. Have they done a 'stress test'? That's fun...

we've decided to do the fireworks here in town. No stress test yet, but we'll see what Wed's appointment brings!

I think the fireworks in town are a good choice! :o) I hope all of you enjoy your 4th!
